huNter and NiKo stay, duh nexa stays because they're the core now and NiKo and huNter like playing with nexa, his calls aren't as bad as fragging and as long as they are all underperforming to shit (apart from NiKo), tactics are not the (main) issue Amanek and Jackz are honestly embarrassing at this point, sure Jackz is a hard entry and his stats aren't meant to be good on T side, but his CT sides are terrible and he has no mind for multifrags and positioning that a player playing on a roster this stacked should have; as for Amanek, it's evident that he stopped playing support almost entirely and his AWPing has been up and down, but now it's down and he was never the impact AWPer on T side that a team like G2 should have had in the first place either Jackz goes in favor of a good rifler/entry, or Amanek goes in favor of an AWPer there's also a world where Jackz goes in favor of an AWP and Amanek transitions back to support, which feels like it makes the most sense now that I think about it smooya is free on the market, they can slap him a bad 3 month contract and have him on trial if they really want to they can also buy out an Astralis player like Magisk or dupreeh at the end of the year, although it's really hard to guess whether those players want to go or not my best bet would be that they'll try Kenny again if they shit the bed during the major which is probably the last window carlos is gonna allow for this roster to stay in tact, and if that doesn't work out they'll definitely sign an AWPer, but I can't really tell who is gonna be accessible on the market at that time

they just need to kick jackz and get an awper , give back amenk his old role that's it
2021-09-26 21:51
jackz isn't that good to fight navi/gambit/heroic/vita/liquidd. Amanek is rekt by good awpers. Nexa's igling is mediocre/bad. 3 out of 5 player's roles are average or below average. That's just non-sense. They are literally wasting the major in Stockholm, since they lack a lot to be a contender. If some say that top 4 finish is enough, Niko came to g2 because he wanted to win, and faze couldn't provide him this opportunity. Just saying, it will be a year since Niko joined g2 after the Major, yet there are no trophies. Will he wait even more? who knows

If NiKo leaves that's actually better for G2 since they freed themselves from what's dragging them down. That means they can freely get rid of Nexa and Hunter if needed They calculate every move.

You following G2 and you still think money is a problem for them Betting on a youngster seems good to me. We can always rely on the "he's still improving" excuse, something we can't say about Jackz and amanek. Doesn't matter how lovely and hard working they are, they're aging, results don't speak in their favor, G2 is aiming to win it all and they're aware of this

2021-09-26 22:03
Because it is? Even if u have money, it's stupid as fuck to spend shit tons of money to buy a rookie with average english and risk if he will be able to perform well against T1 teams. If u can get him for free like broky, sure, it's worth but not in this scenario.

G2 csgo has gotten pretty much all their players/rosters for free. They've only made one expensive signing (NiKo) which barely surpassed 700k$ apparently. A 16year old is a prospect, a long term project they can build. He's one for the future. I think they can allow themselves to take that risk even if it turns out being an expensive flop, which I doubt not only because I'm sure he'll improve over the years (especially under an org like G2) but also because I dont think he's worth that much. MillionS is overreacting Can't be worse than Amanek can it

What u mean for free. They bought nexa/hunter from CR4ZY and jackz from 3DMax. Keep in mind they have teams in other games, especially in LOL where they get huge salaries and doesn't really win much, same in CS. U have no clue about organizations if u think CEO sleeps at money and are rich as fuck, most of the orgs have financial losses.

They didn't buy Nexa and Hunter, Cr4zy disbanded and they were literally free agents.

Also I'm talking about G2 since 2015 & before, from G2. V and Mako, innocent, Titan acquisition, Kinguin partnership... >especially in LOL where they get huge salaries and doesn't really win much Sure, being the most successful European team ever and nobody coming even close is not winning much. You don't have an idea how big their brand is if you're saying this. Their LEC spot viewership alone is worth more any G2 players' salary, plus they literally made the biggest LoL signing ever FOR FREE. Don't oversimplifying and come up with more elaborate thinking, there's a reason orgs have especialized departments and established measures for each one. >most of the orgs have financial losses. Cool. Now re-read our comments. I'm not talking about most orgs and I don't give a fuck about your unfounded opinion. Yes, sinking, failed, scummy shady orgs such as Trashtralies or Heroic have massive losses each year, but I was talking about them We're talking about G2. We were talking about Carlos ocelote. Their method, working philosophy and pretty much everything is out there for anyone to see. It's all public, it's not a big mystery. Forbes reporting %80+ revenue from esports alone each year is only an example. You have no clue about what we're talking about so be quiet. Yes, ocelote sleeps at money and is rich as fuck.

I'm talking about nothing more and nothing else than the most successful and popular esports org, founded by the esports personality of the year Bosscelote the I (and only) Don't dare compare them to the other insignificant insects I can bring Elon Musk out of nowhere to make a point too Have a good one.
2021-09-26 23:22
">especially in LOL where they get huge salaries and doesn't really win much Sure, being the most successful European team ever and nobody coming even close is not winning much." Where did I say they are bad or something like that? They are not winning much and that's true. What did they win over the past 7 years? 8 LEC springs, MSI, 4x 2nd place. 2.7 milion $ in 7years, including salaries, buyouts, % from prize for players, there is a high possibility they have financial problems at least in LOL section. "plus they literally made the biggest LoL signing ever FOR FREE." yeah great, they did it, they also had to give rekkles huge salary, they have another 2 stars in the team and they wont play for 10k or something like that. "Forbes reporting %80+ revenue from esports alone each year is only an example." Revenue =/= profit. U can get 30 milion revenue in a year and it looks nice, but it doesn't anymore if u will have 31 milions of costs. "I'm talking about nothing more and nothing else than the most successful and popular esports org" Most successful? ispo.com/en/trends/top-5-most-successful.. I don't see G2 here. Are they most popular? Debatable cuz I don't think there are any statistics of that overall.

Bro why don't you stop talking out of your arse. You didn't include many of their achievements, not even the fact that they're the only European team to win an MSI title ever. You just went on to Liquipedia, copypasted the "money earnings" section and that's it. You also talking about prizepools as if that meant shit, ignoring the fact that LoL is the most watched esport by far. CDL (CoD) has $6M prizepool yet you have teams selling their spot Esports prizepools are the lowest source of income among all CCs. All your doing is baseless assumptions, cherry-picking and conveniently ignoring ALL the other and actual relevant factors. "There is a high possibility they have financial problems at least in LOL section." Lmfao the arrogance. Just prove it or shut up, figures are out there. Sponsors, investors, actions whether they are impact media, branding, (closing a global partnership with Ralph Lauren) and so on will make you think otherwise unless you're another entitled Dane.
2021-09-27 05:47
That website HAHAHAHA 0/8 unless you're that naive. Are you seriously making points based of fucking prizepool money? - Not another 2, more like another 4. They were an all-star team. Barcelona also has to pay Messi, but he was earning them x10 more than they had to pay him. What are this wack points. - it's literally profit. Won't argue further about stuff you can research yourself. And I'm saying research, not Google "top 5 esport teams" like a noob and click on the 1st low-effort article that's solely based on prizepool money.

Btw Which buyouts in LoL? Can you tell me? Their latest signing after years of keeping the same squad for years (Rekkles, a Free Agent) happened at the same time they were selling a FRANCHISE G2 player to C9 for $11M. Nov. 2020 Ignoring this "Psg ain't rich because they have football players to pay!!!" weird, unheard of childish type of thinking, you're talking about 'salaries' as if players were valued the same years ago. Even ocelote was playing in the starting G2 lineup. There is an economic relativity, as in any company. That safe cushion and financial accommodation generates exponential and self-substantial interest growth. They have entered an upward spiral promoted by a self-sufficient model. So basically don't expect these guys to show any ounce of your so called "financial problems" anytime soon, because they're getting richer by time.

"I don't think it's debatable" Thank God Idgaf about what you think escharts.com/blog/most-popular-esports-o.. Yes. There are objective statistics for that. You just keep talking without knowing shit. BTW Vitality too has a LoL team. They too have different esports teams. Difference is they haven't really achieved anything in esports, but they're so fucking rich. Same with EDG Chinese org. Same with BDS, their CEOs (a noble family, frauds and tax evaders) are literal billionaires And many more, most of which are irrelevant in the esports scene. There's orgs and "orgs" Thought we were past the "they have salaries to pay!!" wack point long time ago. There's many factors involved. Maybe that doesn't even make up a small percentage of their earnings? Maybe there's other factors involved? Maybe... they do it because they can? Tesla too has employees. Are you for real or? Can find 100s of articles listing G2 1st as the most successful org, now go on and so some research and critical thinking your own because you don't even follow the LoL scene to begin with.

Kenny ?? Why would they downgrade ?? Just get a New fpl player. Look where bymas ,frozen, broky is .. They need to get young blood in the scene. Addition of b1t made navi tier 1 team immediately. Pumping and dumping same players again and again is not good for any team. Also , Kenny is a typical beta male that acts CRINGE 60% of the time.
